HLS October Sketch Challenge

What? Where did September go? Seriously, I cannot believe it is October.

Seeing it is the beginning of a new month there is a new sketch challenge for you to play with over at Happy Little Stampers.

If you play along you will have a chance to win this stamp set from Happy Little Stampers!

Here is my DT card

I always seem to stump myself even though I design the sketches lol. But, I never let that defeat me. 

To create this card, I die cut my 'grass', placed it on the card and drew an outline in pencil at the top of the slopes. I removed the die and had a guide to where I could put my houses.

I didn't have much in the way of stamps or dies so the next best thing was to draw some funky houses myself. I coloured them with my Wink of Stella pens. I had another photo that showed all the glitter but I seemed to have lost it :(

The sentiment is from the Happy Little Stampers Big Bold Birthday set.

We have a wonderful Guest Designer joining us for this challenge - Valentyna. She is an AMAZING card maker and we are honoured to have her with us.

I hope you will find the time to play along with us this month.
